About the School

StColumbaColumba Catholic Primary School opened for the first time in Hope Street Bunyip in March, 2001. Columba is part of the Iona-Maryknoll Parish. The school has a modern and innovative facility including new classrooms and a library containing the latest technology. 

Columba prides itself on catering for the individual needs of students with extensive intervention programs and extra-curricula activities. Columba uses the Bluearth Sports Program and has a strong Arts focus with students regularly participating in music, visual, and performing arts. Columba boasts highly successful student leadership initiatives and very effective pastoral care and wellbeing processes.

Columba has a tremendously dedicated staff who use exemplary teaching skills and strategies to facilitate learning. Through these learning experiences students are taught to be life-long, co-operative and inquiring learners.

Our motto is ‘Let Your Light Shine’. Parents are an integral part of the school and are encouraged to participate in all programs. Education is seen as a partnership between home, school and the wider parish community including Sacramental Programs which are ‘Parish-based, family-centred and school-supported’.
